    DSH - Qualitative Research – Data Analysis

    Wednesday, 16 May, 2018 - 10:00 to Friday, 25 May, 2018 - 16:00
    Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering Campus


    Qualitative research may be defined as a research process that uses inductive data analysis to learn about the meaning and experiences that participants hold about a problem or issue, by identifying patterns or themes.

    Throughout the academic year 2017 – 2018 the VUB organizes a series of two-day seminars in Qualitative Research. (details in attachment below)

    For each seminar participants are asked to bring into discussion their own study design and experiences as each two-day seminar is based on an interactive working group design. Both preliminary conceptual ideas on a planned qualitative oriented study as well as more elaborated study designs or even first research results are welcomed.


    3.Qualitative Research – Data Analysis

    This two-day seminar discusses various data analysis methods within several qualitative traditions, including, among others, thematic analysis, listening guide method, and interpretative phenomenological analysis.

    As these data analysis methods influence both the choice in research design and data collection method, as well as the kind of conclusions that may be drawn from the study, this seminar aims to outline the merits and the pitfalls of the various qualitative data analysis methods.


    Wed 16th May 2018, 10am – 4pm : Narrative Analysis in room D2.14

    Fri 18th May 2018, 10am – 4pm : Thematic Analysis in room D2.06


    4.Qualitative Research – Writing up your findings

    This two-day seminar discusses the process of writing up your findings based on various qualitative research methods. The kind of conclusions that may be drawn from a study are influenced by both the merits and the limits of the methods used for data collection and data analysis.


    Thur 24th May 2018, 10am – 4pm in room D2.15

    Fri 25th May 2018, 10am – 4pm in room D2.15
